8 Patriots Selected to the Pro Bowl

The NFL announced the Pro Bowl rosters for the AFC and the NFC, and eight Patriots have been selected to the NFL’s All-Star game. All of the Patriots that were selected will be going to the Pro Bowl as starters (minus Andre Carter, who won’t be playing due to injury but is still recognized for his selection). The eight players from New England represent the most from any AFC team. The eight Patriot Pro Bowlers are:

  • QB Tom Brady
  • WR Wes Welker
  • TE Rob Gronkowski
  • G Logan Mankins
  • G Brian Waters
  • DT Vince Wilfork
  • DE Andre Carter
  • ST Matthew Slater
Any snubs from the Patriots?

Looking at the list, it’s hard to say that any of these Patriots do not belong, or that there are any Pats that should be there that aren’t. You could make a case for TE Aaron Hernandez over Antonio Gates, but Gates is deserving as well. NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi makes an interesting argument in his Pro Bowl roster analysis when he argues that the fullback position on the Pro Bowl should be replaced with an H-back instead. Lombardi says the he would put Hernandez in the H-back spot.

What do you think? Any snubs or should-not’s?
